The Quality Infrastructure Investment Database is an initiative of the G20 under the 2019 Japanese Presidency, in collaboration with the Global Infrastructure Hub, the OECD and the World Bank.
The database includes resources and facilities relevant to Quality Infrastructure Investment under the principles of Sustainable Growth & Development, Economic Efficiency, Environmental Considerations, Building Resilience, Social Considerations, and Infrastructure Governance.
The objective of the report and the accompanying index is not simply to rank countries, but to use score movements as a benchmark from which to investigate trends, identify successful PPP performers, and focus on the approaches that can facilitate a better understanding of common challenges and best-practice standards.
The Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub), working with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Boston Consulting Group (BCG), conducted a scenario-planning exercise to understand how a collection of 25 transformative trends—megatrends—could reshape the infrastructure industry in the future. The exercise involved surveying more than 400 practitioners across 70 countries on the certainty of direction, scale of impact and level of preparedness for the megatrends. The output of this exercise resulted in three scenarios and a set of implications for the infrastructure industry.
